One Night With the King : Story of Esther

No, it’s not a story about Elvis, but a movie about Queen Esther. A smallish, independent Christian company is making the film, based on a novel by Tommy Tenny, an evangelical Christian writer.

However, Susan Zahn, the film’s publicist, told me that the big-budget film is looking for a crossover market of secular and Jewish moviegoers, and there are no specifically Christian allusions mixed in with the Purim story retelling.

Starring as Esther is Tiffany Dupont, who was discovered in a talent search. Such notables as Peter O’Toole (as the prophet Samuel) and Omar Sharif (as a Persian prince) have signed on. “King” is scheduled for release on March 25, close to the Passover and Easter holidays.
